"From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us."
A spark of divine light. For the past 50 years, the teachers and staff at Christ the King Catholic School have been blessed to witness, nurture and encourage the spark of divine light that resides in each one of our students.
September 2, 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the first day of school at Christ the King. When looking through our archives, one defining fact about the history of our church and school has been truly inspiring. In 1961, a small but dedicated group of parishioners pooled their resources and funds to build a temporary church for Christ the King parish to call home. Only three short years later, in 1964, they once again banded together to build our school. We believe this decision speaks volumes about the importance that we, as Catholics, bestow upon the powerful impact a Catholic education provides our children. Before our larger, permanent Church was built, before we built a parish office or a parish center, we built a school.
In 50 years time, over 1,000 students have been educated at Christ the King Catholic School. For 50 years, we have helped our students discover God’s plan for their lives. We have helped them to prepare for their continuing education in an environment that is faith based and academically challenging. We have created a culture of inclusion within a community that we call our family.
Our Catholic faith is central to the mission and philosophy of the school and lived out daily by our students, staff, and parents.
